Making for the amecon ball.

excuse the crappy artwork, drawing is not my forte! A very talented friend of mine is currently turning this into a nice sketch, but you can get the general idea from this anyway!

18/7/10 All done! The dress was nice and simple, just three looong strips of yellow jersey sewn together, I did have to add bust darts to get a nice shape, as it was a little baggy otherwise, but they are nice and subtle anyway.

I then took some brown crushed velvet and made bias strips which lined all the edged, and some extra cut into hexagons and stitched all round the body in a spiral shape.

I then took pink jersey and cut it into diamonds and edged in the brown bias and stitched down the back.

Finally I took a trip to the bead store and bought some dangley earring pieces some long pins, half cups and two wooden balls, attached them all together and sprayed them brown and added some smiley face details!
